COVID-19 vaccination policy

Employees have questions about the COVID-19 vaccination policy, now in effect. Get the FAQ here.

If you are receiving your vaccine from Texas Health, first register at Ready Set Secure with these instructions if you do not have an account, then select and confirm your vaccine appointment at the Texas Health Vaccine Registration Center.

If you need assistance, please reach out to Yolanda Haggerty.

Vaccine verification should be sent to our confidential, clinical Employee Health Team at SWHRemployeehealth@texashealth.org.

Medical or religious exemptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and granted as may be appropriate under the law. Requests need to be submitted by Aug. 16.

If you have additional or personal questions regarding our vaccination policy, please email our clinical Employee Health Team at SWHRemployeehealth@texashealth.org.

Risk Adjustment gives physicians a safety net 

The physician’s time is split between desktop medicine (administration) and face-to-face medicine. More than two-thirds of desktop medicine is dedicated to clinical documentation.  

“I would wager that physicians got into the practice of medicine to spend more time with patients and less time with charts,” said Ren Mullinix, SWHR’s Risk Adjustment Vice President. “The Risk Adjustment team works to make clinical documentation easier and more understandable.”

Compliance hotline updated

Do you need guidance from the Compliance team? They have a new phone number: 1-800-673-0108. You can always email the Compliance team at SWHRcompliance@southwesternhealth.org.
